Founded by our pioneer batch of Economics undergraduates in AY2002/03, the society is the student representative body of all SMU undergraduates reading the Bachelor of Science (Economics) Programme. All economics students in SMU are automatically a part of, and hence represented by, the SMU Economics Society. Oikos aims to further the interests and welfare of all economics students here at SMU.


In the aspects of academic and career development, the society strives to empower students with information, resources and opportunities that enable them to make informed choices regarding their education and careers. Apart from providing practical help, Oikos organises student life activities to encourage a balanced student life here at SMU. Most importantly, the society aims to foster a strong sense of community spirit and for students to take away strong and lasting friendships throughout the course of their study.
